Freaking finally, right? It only took me a month.
First night in Rome. Pizza Marinara with extra vegetables. Nice and simple, so the tomato and oregano can really shine.
The Beehive. Organic Vegetarian B&B and restaurant in Rome.
No fixed portion sizes or prices. The restaurant looked like a normal house. You just sit down in the kitchen, tell the chef exactly what you want, and he makes it fresh right in front of you.
A delicious mixed salad. Simple, but a welcome relief to the not so vegan-friendly Roman carb fest.
The meze platter my mom and I split, including vegan burger patties and special hummus.
A nice cafe in Montepulciano, a medieval hill town in Tuscany, This was the raw zucchini salad.
The best spinach ever. Just dressed with REAL olive oil and the biggest-ass pine nuts ever.
Lampone-Rosmarino (Raspberry-Rosemary) Gelato from the Pluripremiata Gelatería–Gelato World Champions, 2006-07 and 2008-09–in San Gimgiano.
Potato-Rosemary Focaccia in Cinque Terre.
I know this is an absolutely horrible photo, but it’s RICE MILK GELATO in Lago Orta, Italy! I almost had a seizure when the guy told me it was vegan. So much better than fruit/sorbet gelato.
Stay tuned for Part II: Greece soon!
